I just got the DVD the other day. I really enjoy Brian's performance. Each effect is performed before a table of four except for three that are done on a local morning news show. The sleights are basic and Brian does an excellent job in explaining how to do them. For some of the trickier sleights, Brian shows them to you from some different angles and points out what to watch out for while performing the effects. A few of the effects require some other gimmicks, to perform. I give the DVD two thumbs up!

The Performer and the company producing probably care.

I haven't seen it, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt that it's good. The problem lies in that there are already too many products out on the market. And they seem to have taken the thunder out of this particular DVD.

If you get this DVD and it turns out to be super great, it'll be a hidden treasure that only you and a few others share.

Exactly! So unless you're west of the Mississippi, please don't buy it!

I could not believe how bad this dvd was.

Seriously, no offense against the Mr. Geer, but I don't know how someone could release this.

Its only my opinion but the audience looked confused and less than interested.

Once again, no offense, but I must give an honest review

Again, not a very fair nor informative review. This has happeneed a lot recently...members giveing very brief negative reviews for tapes/DVDs but not giving specific reasons. It is OK to give personal opinions but these should be based on some concrete examples. Otherwise its just meanspirited and doesn't help anyone - members and/or the performer.

I haven't seen this DVD and so can't actually tell you what I think of it but there is a comprehensive review to be had here, bad as it may be.

O.k. a bit more informative

1st trick on the dvd is a spongeball routine that makes no sense. (he tries to explain the nonsensical nature of the effect as making it more colorful but it truly eliminates the magic of any spongeball routine).

overall he tends to take tricks that are allready out there and over complicate them and draw them out untill the audience has no idea what has happened and waits for him to recap what has taken place.

Im not going to go through every trick and explain why its bad and then have someone chastize me for that as well.

there are enough bad reviews about this dvd allready.

My question is, who looked at this material and thought this was a good idea.
